Grey crelly polish with blue jack-o-lantern nails colored in with watercolor paint.

Petrifying Pumpkins

October 22, 2019 Lisa 1

I thought it would be fun to make advanced stamping decals that were filled with white and use watercolor paint on them. It worked fairly well. I love the watercolor look and how it lets you use a blend of colors across an image. And I love using it with Read More

Purple, pink, and blue smoosh marble nail art with fabulously hat-ed witch and black cat familiar.

Witch’s Familiar

October 21, 2019 Lisa 0

This was a nail art that just kept getting away from me. I knew a smoosh marble was going to happen, but I didn’t have a color scheme plan for my accent nails. The cat had to be black because that’s @clairestelle8challenge’s prompt but the colors I used in my Read More

A delicately gruesome zombie nail art using a translucent shimmery orange polish and soft metallic green zombies.

Zombie Apocalypse

October 17, 2019 Lisa 0

Today’s nail art is a combination of delicate and gruesome with zombies pulling terrible faces on a soft, glittery orange/magenta background. I’m sure they’re friendly zombies just trying to get out a hello around their rotting tongues…🀣 Products Used Base Polishes: Femme Fatale’s “City of the Sun“ with an acetone-thinned Read More

Neutral colored nail art of an evil magic spell to summon a spider queen. Lots of spider webs.

Summoning the Spider Queen – BBB Review (glow in the dark powder)

October 14, 2019 Lisa 0

[press sample] I’m always excited when spider or bug prompts show up. So today’s design jumped ship from @clairestelle8’s Halloween prompts to @glamnailchallenge’s spider prompt. I really wanted to explore some ugly prettiness and neutral shades with just a touch of color. So I painted in all neutrals and ended Read More

Vampire Hangries are Messy

October 13, 2019 Lisa 0

I mean…it’s bad enough being a regular human and getting hangry when your blood sugar levels drop. I can only imagine what it’s like for vampires… πŸ˜‰ Products Used Base Polishes: Celestial Polish’s “The Blood is the Life“, Pretty Serious’ “Forbidden Zone“, and Sinful Colors’ “Sin-ammon“ Stamping Polishes: B.

Cats Conquer Space – BP Review (stamping polish and plate)

September 25, 2019 Lisa 0

[press sample] Today I’m reviewing two items from Born Pretty: a golden stamping polish called “In Fire” and a their space-themed Outer Space-L001 stamping plate. For my design I tried to cover all three uses of the polish: base, stamping, and filling in the stamping. The cat on my middle Read More

Cursed Pirates

Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day! I’m so out of practice writing for this blog that I can’t even think of a good pirate-y phrase to say hello again. Hi! I’ve slowly been painting my nails more and more complexly so it’s time to start posting too (and also because Read More

Pink cake with three fancy candles sticking out of it.

Happy Third Year Blogiversary (to me)

June 23, 2019 Lisa 2

I tend to skip over big moments like numbers of followers or posts and especially year end posts. I’m just not that into summaries, even though they can be a great way to revisit older posts, because I can always think about something else to write about and then the Read More

A Little Mermay

May 31, 2019 Lisa 0

This has literally been the first time I painted my nails in over a month but I really didn’t want to miss Mermay so I made time for painting today. Sorry that I’ve had to focus on other things lately. I wish I could say they were things for the Read More

Minimalist Meow - Hermit Werds - freehanded white "Meow" nail art with cute kitty cats

Minimalist Meow

May 10, 2019 Lisa 0

Ages ago I had white gel polish on my nails and I decided to paint this design real quick and save it for a rainy day. I’d seen several images like this on t-shirts and bags and anything with four letters goes well on the nails. This was inevitable! I’m Read More
